The Penn State Mont Alto Woodsmen team practices and competes in timbersport competitions throughout the year in preparation for the Mid-Atlantic Woodsmen's Meet each spring.
A total of six 2-year forestry schools from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina are part of the conference, and the location of the meet rotates to a different host school every year. Penn State Mont Alto most recently hosted the 16th Annual Mid-Atlantic Woodsmen's Meet on April 8, 2017.
Students compete in events including cross-cut saw, chainsaw, pole climb, axe throw, underhand chop, and log roll. This is the extracurricular highlight of the year for many of the students.
